The CWGC honours the 1.7 million men and women of the Commonwealth Forces who died in the two world wars, ensuring they will never be forgotten. Our values and aims, laid out in 1917, are as relevant now as they were 100 years ago. 

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a talented and self-motivated Volunteer Coordinator to join our team based in our South East Region to deliver the Annington Homes sponsored ‘Eyes On, Hands On’ volunteering project.

The ‘Eyes on, Hands On’ project is a new venture which will seek to develop a volunteer network to link the military communities in the UK with the CWGC sites in their local area. The postholder will develop opportunities to use volunteers to support and supplement the care provided by regional operations staff to CWGC commemorations.

Working 15 hours over the week, you will be liaising closely with the local Regional Manager, the in-place Volunteer Coordinators and your volunteers building and maintaining partnerships with a wide range of volunteer organisations and associations, ensuring regular engagement.

In order to succeed in this role, you will have excellent communication, presentation and networking skills. You will also have experience of working with the UK Armed Forces, and empathy with the Service ethos.

If you would like to be part of a key team raising the profile of our valuable work and think you’ve got what it takes to succeed in this role please send your completed Application Form, CV and a covering letter explaining what you can bring to the role and why you believe you can fulfil the requirements of the job, as outlined in the job description .

Circa £29,746 pro rata, depending upon experience, with an allowance of £1,044, pro rata, to compensate for the fact a home office will be required. The Commission will also require the successful candidate to use their own car for any travel, for which mileage will be paid.
